Right wing, top of the key, left wing, right corner and left corner, the 3-pointers seemed to be coming from everywhere Saturday for the Montverde Academy boys basketball team.
Jamail Jones was the primary weapon, scoring 32 points with five long-range bombs as the Eagles â€”ranked 25th nationally by USA Today â€” rolled to an 82-65 victory over Greensboro (N.C.) Dudley in a City of Palms Classic first-round encounter.
A 6-5 senior, Jones scored 17 second-quarter points as Montverde grabbed ahold of what the Marquette recruit called “a statement game.” The Eagles led 47-33 at the half, pushed their advantage to 61-42 in the third quarter and maintained control throughout the fourth.
“We’re coming into this tournament to make a lot of noise,” said Jones, who finished by hitting 12 of 20 shots, 5 of 10 on 3-pointers and 3 of 3 on free throws. “This is a big win for us.”
Senior James Bell (a Villanova recruit) added 13 points, senior Papa Samba Ndao (headed to Boston College) chipped in 12 and senior Hauker Palsson had 11 for the Eagles, who improved to 9-1 and earned a spot in Monday’s quarterfinals against the winner between No. 4 Los Angeles Westchester and Bartow.
Senior P.J. Hairston (North Carolina) and classmate Reggie Dillard each scored 16 points to pace Dudley (7-2), which dropped into the consolation bracket to face Weston Sagemont at 1:45 p.m. Monday.
